There’s nothing we love more than true crime. We talk about it, we read about it, hell, we built the Death Becomes Us true crime festival. So we decided to take our daily true crime chats (it’s a fun office environment!) and condense them into an easy to read column jam packed with all the crime news you crave. From our favorite podcasts, to some classic #TBTs, we’ve got all the talking points you need to scare your friends and family.

DISPATCHES FROM THE DEAD: PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS

  • To kick off this truly buckwild new year, we have three brand new podcasts for you. The first, Disorganized Crime: Smuggler’s Daughter, is an almost bucolic look at pot smuggling in California in the 70s and 80s. It’s hosted by a woman delightfully named Rainbow Valentine, and tells the story of her hippy smuggler parents.
  • If you’re more interested in the aughts than the 80s, check out iHeartRadio and Tenderfoot TV’s newest podcast Monster: DC Sniper. I bet you can guess what this show is about?
  • Then there’s Dig, a Louisville Public Media podcast that investigates what exactly happens to rape cases in Louisville. This show is not going to make you feel great.
